Cassandra Giovanni | 156 comments So, what are you starting with Martha?
I think I am going to get started with either Entanglement or Fracture. The first line of the later has me thrown off, though...

Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) OMG> I'm hoping to read 26 books this year! LOL good luck!


message 4: by Tami (new)

Tami Vogel (tami_vogel) I'd never tracked the # of books before. Thanks to Goodreads I know I read just over 100 books last year!

so...this year? Think I'll shoot for 115.

First book is "Juliet in August," just starting it.

The first in the series was good, but also had a awkward start for me--so I won't give up!


message 9: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Giovanni | 156 comments The Goddess Test books look really good. How are you liking them, Martha?


message 10: by Hud-c (new)

Hud-c | 438 comments 60, I'll go with that number, decent enough and since I think I won't have much time reading this year like Gina. I envy you Martha. 115 books, way to go! :D

I started with Resident Evil this first day of Jan. Hopefully, I can reach my goal now. I failed last year though. :(


message 11: by Dale (new)

Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) I'm trying to do 26 books for an A-Z challenge. LOL

No reason to envy. I just read at any free moment I have. Thanks :D

That's a great book to kick off the year!
I'm sure you'll be able to! I believe in you!"


Thanks Martha!

Sorry for delayed reply, Cassandra - I'm only on here about once a week :-)

Fav book of last year? hmmmm.... I think I'd have to say "Orphan Master's Son" The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson It was so beautifully written and when I look back, that's one of only a handful that stick in my mind.

What was your fav read of 2012?


message 17: by Dale (new)

Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) I think my fave for 2012 was I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1) by Barry Lyga
